Asians like to sit around a table talk some, eat some, laugh some…Its in the heritage, genes, DNA,blood.. Anyways, this is just condusive to those dinner table talking tradition. Every Asian country has a different twist/style of this basic. They also have different names for it Jeongol, shabu -shabu,.. It all begins with this basic stock type soup base. We cook the precut, presliced, prepared meats,veggies, sides (tofu..) In the boiling stock at the table. As each area has a different style so does each family. Every home different style
